Gush, gush, gag.
I co-teach a class with a professor who is absolutely lovely. She is sweet, she is caring, she is generous. She is also ebullient in her praise for her students when they do the smallest little thing. For some reason, this just totally grosses me out. I'm pretty sure that the students recognize that *everyone* is excellent in her eyes, and therefore don't take her praise seriously? Or could it be that they really DO expect that and that by comparison I'm the crotchety grouch? HMMMM. Well, I ain't changin' the way I do it. *GRMPH*
